I'm afraid you are stuck as the Realtek chipset doesn't have a dedicated ASIO driver. As tomeoftom's mention in his answer, you can use the Asio4All. This will give you the ASIO interface but not necessarily the low latency that comes from using a dedicated ASIO driver. This is because Asio4all is more a interface "wrapper" than an optimized driver - it ...

Pretty certainly yes to 1 here, this is an area where most PC laptop manufacturers apparently don't care for quality at all – namely, to answer 2, they tend to use the cheapest microphones and preamps available (it has little to do with software), which is IMO absolutely ok because 3. you should always use external microphones if you care for quality at all, ...

SoundIt does just that. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/soundit/jpmlghikapcebilgkglhelbdipdibmgd And it lets you stream the sound output of your PC to any web browser so you can stream to any phone or even another PC.

Go to Devices/Device Setup then under VST Audio System on the right side of the window Tick the option underneath ASIO Driver that says release driver when app is in background... ;-p that worked for me.

This will depend a bit on exactly what is in the files. They may be just audio, but they may have midi bits and pieces in there as well. In your .band file, you should have a media subfolder, and the audio tracks should be in there (as .aiff files if I recall). Any audio app should let you import them and let you save as wav, mp3 or whatever. I'd use ...

This is by design - when running a full featured DAW, the assumption is that it will be controlling all sound, otherwise the project you are working on may not end up as you expect.

Have you considered just using a dedicated recorder device? It sounds like you want a recorder rather than a DAW. Something like a Zoom H4n might work well for your purposes as you can simply plug in a mic and hit the record button. No computer needed. This would also allow her to record anywhere rather than being constrained to working at the computer.

You have the minimum down already - a laptop, a DAW, and some headphones. You don't need anything else. Other things may be useful to you, but aren't necessary. If you are classically trained, you may want notation software. But even then, a good notebook and pen will probably do just fine. Whatever software I end up with, I'd like my process to feel a ...

I hate to bring bad news but I don't think you can have a single NTFS or HFS+J/HFSX filesystem that will work stable to read and write data across both Windows and OS X computers. In 15 years of fiddling with drives and all sorts of filesystems I haven't once found a software solution that would write in a reliable way to a non-native FS, especially long ...

I solved this by making keyboard it self is the only output device, Synthesia will use the synthesizer in the keyboard which is a hardware thus is faster. and u will hear the sounds on the Keyboard speakers. No delay at all.

I know I'm a little late here, but I just ran into the same problem and was trying to find a solution. It turns out that I was pumping a stereo signal into a mono input and then listen to the stereo signal mixed from that, which created that 'half' sound. Be careful with the type of cable you're using to split the signal. Some of those 1/4" splitters only ...

I had the same problem with my Mbox 3 pro, and concluded that there's a conflict between drivers when you use your interface for both windows and your DAW. Install the original drivers, try disabling your sound card as the default audio device in Windows (just let the Windows sound card as your default one) and use it only with your DAW.

What is Windows actually "doing" with this full-range option? Nothing. If you set Windows to the full range option, it is not doing anything to the signal at the output. You're sending the full frequency range to the speakers. That's not to say the speakers themselves may not act on the signal though. There are crossovers in the speakers themselves to ...

I recommend Stream what you hear 1.4 Simple stand-alone App that does what you need and streams to devices and over Http. Just download and install it and then right-click the tray icon to choose your target network output device (it has to support upnp/dlna). Watching YouTube videos could be difficult though, because the audio is extremely delayed this way ...

I've altered a program found on internet and created WLStream. It enables you to stream audio from a Windows output device so Pulse Audio will be able to play it back on a Linux host. The communication between the two is done with plink from Putty. There's a delay in the audio stream caused by the network, I'm sure if you alter the privilege on the TCP ...

It's never that easy because you have bypassed some very basic requirements in your question. For a start you need to be able to "link" the recorded vocal audio to the backing track - you need to be able to play the backing track and hear what your good lady has sung without suffering timing differences that can make it sound like a mess. At the very ...

I think your question is actually very misleading. Some Windows based laptops have far superior sound to Macs, and some are much worse. The thing Macs have is consistency, as Apple has control over the entire hardware, whereas there are a million different Windows laptops. So for your 3 questions: 1 - not better generally, nor worse generally, just more ...

If you intend to use the mic with your PC only (and given that you don't have a fancy audio interface with preamps), the better choice would be to use a cheap condenser mic, just like those intended for skype and those which are supplied as a part of a headset, example. The reasoning behind this is that usually the dynamic mics have a lower sensitivity and ...

Generally VST plugins are only used inside another program such as a sequencer (cubase for instance). As for applying them to the whole output of your pc, this isn't really something i've come across. On mac I have come across apps that would you let you add effects to your main output such as reverb and equalization but these are stand-alone apps and not ...

See if Sibelius supports ASIO drivers (look for Asio4All for an implementation that should work without a dedicated soundcard). If your keyboard also has MIDI Out, maybe a MIDI-to-USB converter cord will be better for latency - the Roland UM-ONE, which I use and works great for Ableton, is 35-50AUD on Ebay.

These things are usually due to a process with higher priority kicking the sound recording process off the CPU for long enough to drop a buffer. On Windows, I have heard this usually being the result of the wireless driver, which for some insane reason has a very high priority. You basically need to ensure your soundcard is running at the highest possible ...

The gm.dls file is typically located in C:\windows\system32\drivers. However, the file gmreadme.txt right near it says: The GM.DLS file contains the Roland SoundCanvas Sound Set which is protected under the following copyright: Roland GS Sound Set/Microsoft (P) 1996 Roland Corporation U.S. The Roland SoundCanvas Sound Set is licensed under Microsoft's End ...

As far as 1/8 inch inputs go. There is no particular reason a cheap USB interface should be any different from the one built in to your system. In many cases, the built in one may even be better. There may be a boost option available in your recording device settings that will let you amplify the sound further. I unfortunately do not have an XP machine ...

There is in fact another solution that I'm about to try. It's called Coperlan Manager, and you can find it here : http://www.copperlan.org/index.php/download Works on mac and windows, and it appears to be driverless. Apparently super simple, cross-platform software for midi over ethernet, with no extra hardware needed.

This happens because the quality of the internal soundcard on the PC laptop is crap and whatever it is using for its clock (even if its synced it still keeps its own time) is not very solid. I am assuming that you are attempting to do this via a network and therefore aren't using either an external soundcard (firewire or usb, MAudio Fastrack for ex) or an ...

Cueing is generally important to DJ mixing. If I follow you correctly, your ideal setup is basically using Virtual DJ as just virtual decks: the audio is going into separate mixer channels via the Denon's two stereo outputs, and you're doing the actual cuing and mixing on the DJM3000. What you need is some way to record the output of the mixer. Currently, ...

What you are experiencing is impedance mismatch and consumer audio. The mic input is a mic level input rather than a line input, however even if you had a line input, consumer line input is not the same impedance as professional line input (which is what comes out of the mixer) so you'd still have problems. What you really need is a USB Audio interface for ...
